Paul (1848) Gauguin Auction Price Results

Who is Paul (1848) Gauguin?
Paul Gauguin's artwork is among some of the most distinctive contemporary art. Although Gauguin started out as an Impressionist, he eventually broke with them, becoming the father of the Symbolism and the Primitive schools of painting. Many of Paul Gauguin's paintings date from his time in rural areas of either Tahiti or the Marquesas Islands. One of the hallmarks of Gauguin's work is his use of large blocks of color, rather than intricate details. Another is his employment of exaggerated proportions. Paul Gauguin's paintings were so radically different from the work of his contemporaries that he met with very mixed responses from critics and the public.

In addition to his paintings, there are many fine Paul Gauguin prints for sale. Gauguin was a proponent of woodcuts and woodcut prints during his lifetime. Invaluable hosts a collection of other vintage and modern collectible woodcut prints, so you're sure to find something to pique your interest.

    Paul Gauguin DS Re: Payment from Vollard Perhaps for his Masterpiece "And the Gold of Their Bodies" Dating from the Last Two Years Before His Death on the Marquesas Islands

    Lot 77: Paul Gauguin DS Re: Payment from Vollard Perhaps for his Masterpiece "And the Gold of Their Bodies" Dating from the Last Two Years Before His Death on the Marquesas Islands

    Auction Date: Sep 29, 2021

    Estimate: $15,000 - $20,000

    Description:

    Paul Gauguin DS Re: Payment from Vollard Perhaps for his Masterpiece "And the Gold of Their Bodies" Dating from the Last Two Years Before His Death on the Marquesas Islands

    A document in French signed by Post-Impressionist artist Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) as "Paul Gauguin" at lower right. Undated, but circa September 1901 - May 1903, and written in Atuona, Hiva Oa, French Polynesia. The piece of blue-lined cream paper is inscribed in a secretarial hand and stamped "Société Commerciale de l'Océanie / Agence de Papeete" at upper right. Expected wear includes paper folds, wrinkles, and even toning. Scattered minor discoloration not really affecting the text. A few layers of paper loss found in the upper left corner have been repaired. Else very good to near fine. 8.25" x 4.375." Displayed below a high-quality photo reproduction of Gauguin's "And the Gold of Their Bodies" ("Et l'or de leurs corps") (1901) in a cream gilt-edged mat measuring 16.75" x 13.125" x .875." overall. Provenance: Ex-Noel Goldblatt (ca. 1926-2003) of the famous Goldblatt's Department Store, to a prominent Los Angeles, California collector. Ex-Sotheby's 1979 and hidden away for over 40 years.

    This financial documents dates from the last two years of Paul Gauguin's life, when he lived in Atuona, the former capital of the Marquesas Islands, in French Polynesia. Gauguin had always wanted to see this group of volcanic islands located about 1,370 km northeast of Tahiti. He arrived at Atuona in August 1901 and lived there until his death at the age of 54 some 19 months later, in May 1903.

    Gauguin signed this bank draft acknowledging receipt of 701 francs, a sum which had been deposited in marks in Hamburg, Germany by Ambroise Vollard (1866-1939), Gauguin's agent since 1899 and a well-known patron of many struggling avant-garde artists.

    Translated:

    "Atuona

    Received from the [stamped: Commercial Society of Oceania / Papeete Agency ] the sum of Seven hundred and one francs equivalent of 557.03 Marks deposited by Mr. A. Vollard Paris to Messieurs Scharf + Rayser [?] Hamburg.

    [signed] Paul Gauguin."

    Transcribed:

    "Atuona

    Reçu de la [stamped: Société Commerciale de l'Océanie / Agence de Papeete] la somme de Sept cent et un francs équivalent du Mark 557.03 versés par Mons. A. Vollard Paris à MM. Scharf + Rayser [?] Hambourg.

    [signed] Paul Gauguin."

    Ambroise Vollard was a Parisian art dealer who financially supported many of the most famous artists of the turn of the twentieth century, including Paul Gauguin, Vincent Van Gogh, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Pablo Picasso. Vollard secured an exclusive contract with Gauguin in 1899 by which Gauguin was granted a monthly salary of 300 francs, in addition to art materials, in return for a promised artistic output of 25 paintings per year.  This receipt was undoubtedly one or two of Vollard's monthly installments plus materials. Gauguin's personal correspondence from this time period shows how anxious he became when mail was interrupted or he couldn't connect with Vollard.

    Gauguin painted such works as "Et l'or de leurs corps (And the gold of their bodies)" (1901), "Le Sorcier d'Hiva Oa (Marquesan Man with a Red Cape)" (1902), and "Jeune Fille à L'éventail (Young Girl with a Fan)" (1902) during his time on the Marquesas Islands (see attached images.) Yet Gauguin's years in Atuona were marked by worsening health, drug dependency, legal trouble, and personal problems. Lingering pain affecting his legs and heart, chronic fatigue, and failing eyesight led the artist to self-medicate with morphine and laudanum. Gauguin's last teenaged native mistress, or vahine, left him to deliver their child in July 1902 and never returned. In March 1903, just two months before his death, Gauguin was charged with libel, fined, and sentenced to prison. He died during the appeal process. Though the general historical consensus is that Gauguin died from secondary symptoms of syphilis, possible other causes of death include a heart attack or morphine overdose.

    The Société Commerciale de l'Océanie was a German overseas bank which flourished between 1876-1914. Its predecessor company had begun as a banking exchange counter in Samoa in 1857. The company branch closest to Atuona appears to have been based in Papeete, the capital of Tahiti, still over 800 miles away.

    This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.

    Erläuterungen / Comments
    Zwischen seinen beiden Aufenthalten in der Südsee hielt sich Gauguin 1893/94 in Paris auf und schuf während dieser Zeit u.a. die 10 Holzschnitte, welche als Illustrationen für seine geplante Publikation «Noa Noa» gedacht waren. Im Mai 1894 reiste er in die Bretagne nach Pont-Aven und traf dort u.a. den Engländer Robert Bevan und den irischen Maler Roderick O’Conor, dem er das vorliegende Werk dediziert hat "for my friend O'Conor". Roderick O’Conor (1860-1940) hielt sich von 1883 an in Pont-Aven auf. Finanziell unabhängig kaufte er Bilder von Gauguin, Cézanne, Bonnard, Manet, Renoir, Séguin und Toulouse-Lautrec. - Weitere Monotypien, aber nicht von der gleichen Wichtigkeit, gingen an Edgar Degas, Aristide Maillol, Alexis Rouart und Francisco Durrio. Für das vorliegende Werk hat Gauguin die mittlere Figur der 3 betenden Bretoninnen dem Ölbild «Bretonne en prière» entnommen, welches 1894 in Pont-Aven oder Paris entstanden ist (Wildenstein 1964, Nr. 518). Die Monotypien, vor allem farbige, sind im Handel von grösster Seltenheit, da es sich dabei um eine besondere Drucktechnik handelt, bei der nur ein einziges Exemplar gedruckt werden kann. Field konnte im gesamten Œuvre Gauguins, zwischen 1894 und 1902 entstanden, nur gerade 139 Monotypien nachweisen



    Between his two stays in the South Seas, Gauguin stayed in Paris in 1893/94 and during this time created, among other things, the 10 woodcuts that were intended as illustrations for his planned publication Noa Noa. In May 1894 he travelled to Pont-Aven in Brittany and met, among others, the Englishman Robert Bevan and the Irish painter Roderick O'Conor, to whom he dedicated the present work "for my friend O'Conor". Roderick O'Conor (1860-1940) stayed in Pont-Aven from 1883. Financially independent, he bought paintings by Gauguin, Cézanne, Bonnard, Manet, Renoir, Séguin and Toulouse-Lautrec. - Other monotypes, but not of the same importance, went to Edgar Degas, Aristide Maillol, Alexis Rouart and Francisco Durrio
    For the present work, Gauguin took the central figure of the 3 praying Breton women from the oil painting Bretonne en prière, painted in Pont-Aven or Paris in 1894 (Wildenstein 1964, no. 518). The monotypes, especially coloured ones, are of the greatest rarity in the trade, as they are a special printing technique in which only one copy can be printed. Field was only able to find 139 monotypes in Gauguin's entire oeuvre, which was created between 1894 and 1902.

    Erläuterungen / Comments
    Das vorliegende Werk portraitiert Louise Schuffenecker, die Frau des Künstlers Émile Schuffenecker. Ihn lernte Gauguin schon 1872 in der Firma des Börsenhändlers Bertin kennen. Da Émile Schuffenecker ein gutes Gespür für künstlerische Qualität hatte und ihm die entsprechenden finanziellen Mittel zur Verfügung standen, kaufte er oft Werke seiner Künstlerkollegen zu Tiefpreisen an. Gauguin, welcher sich bei der Familie häuslich niederliess, wandte sich wegen Schuffeneckers Eigennützigkeit im Verlauf des Jahres 1890 von ihm ab. Dazu trug sicher auch Gauguins Liaison mit Louise Schuffenecker bei. Den Gips führte Paul Gauguin noch Anfang des Jahres 1890 aus. Erst 1960 wurde in einer kleinen Edition von nur gerade 10 Exemplaren die Büste in der Giesserei Claude Valsuani, inzwischen von seinem Sohn Marcel geführt, im "cire perdue" Verfahren gegossen

    This work portrays Louise Schuffenecker, the wife of the artist Émile Schuffenecker. Gauguin met him as early as 1872 in the company of the stockbroker Bertin. Since Émile Schuffenecker had a good feeling for artistic quality and had the corresponding financial means at his disposal, he often bought works by his fellow artists at low prices. Gauguin, who made his home with the family, turned away from Schuffenecker in the course of 1890 because of his selfishness. Gauguin's liaison with Louise Schuffenecker certainly contributed to this. Paul Gauguin still executed the plaster at the beginning of 1890. It was not until 1960 that the bust was cast using the "cire perdue" process in a small edition of just 10 copies at the Claude Valsuani foundry, now run by his son Marcel.

    Erläuterungen / Comments
    Die vorliegende Zeichnung von Paul Gauguin ist eine frühe Studie zum Ölgemälde "Te fare hymenee (La maison des chants)", das er wohl im Herbst 1892 während seines ersten Aufenthaltes in Tahiti vollendete. Das Werk wurde zusammen mit dem Ölgemälde (Wildenstein Institute, Ref. Nr. PGLS9R) 1982 bei Christie's in New York versteigert. Es zeigt eine Szene, welche Gauguin in seinen Erinnerungen und Berichten über die erste Reise nach Tahiti im Essay "NOA NOA" beschreibt. So haben sich Dorfbewohner in einer grossen Gemeinschaftshütte zu einer Art Gebetsgottesdienst versammelt. Es waren vor allem Frauen, oder Gauguin zeigt uns einfach nur diesen Blick, wo die Frauen getrennt von den Männern sassen. Auf der Rückseite des Blattes notierte der Künstler eigenhändig in Tinte ein kleines Vokabular Tahitianisch-Französisch von gängigen Redewendungen sowie den Zahlen 1 bis 12

    This drawing by Paul Gauguin is an early study for the oil painting "Te fare hymenee (La maison des chants)", which he probably completed in autumn 1892 during his first stay in Tahiti. The work was auctioned together with the oil painting (Wildenstein Institute, ref. no. PGLS9R) at Christie's in New York in 1982. It shows a scene that Gauguin describes in his memoirs and accounts of his first trip to Tahiti in the essay "NOA NOA". Villagers gathered in a large communal hut for a kind of prayer service. It was mainly women, or Gauguin simply shows us this view, where the women sat separately from the men.
    On the back of the sheet, the artist himself noted in ink a small Tahitian-French vocabulary of common phrases as well as the numbers 1 to 12

    Charcoal on Paper

    Known for: Post-Impressionist paintings, drawings, portraits
    Biography: Paul Gauguin was born in 1848 in Paris of a Breton father and a Peruvian Creole mother. His grandmother, Flora Tristan, was a revolutionary socialist and an early French feminist who sometimes claimed to be descended from "a Bourbon of Aragon" whose family also produced the Borgia popes and Lucrezia Borgia. Tristan married a French engraver who became so violent that he was eventually locked up for twenty years. Their daughter, Aline Chazel, was Gauguin's mother. His father, Clovis Gauguin, was a journalist who died when his son was an infant. Paul had no formal education of any kind beyond high school. He ran away to sea at the age of fourteen, acquiring a taste for travel at that time. He left the French Navy at the close of the Franco-Prussian War. He settled in Paris, painting in his spare time while working in a banking house. He not only distinguished himself in his brokerage firm, but managed to make considerable profits from independent speculation, earning as much as the approximate equivalent of $40,000 in one year. Van Gogh, in despair at Gauguin's decision to leave, had severed his left ear with a razor, and handed it as a gift to a prostitute who had befriended him. Saddened by the disastrous culmination of his visit to Van Gogh and depressed by public laughter and neglect of his painting, Gauguin nevertheless painted several still lifes that belied his state of mind and manifested his belief that, "The Japanese are masters of us all." The influence of woodcuts became evident in the flat background and decorative patterning. The hot pinks and yellows anticipated the riotous colors that would dominate his Tahitian paintings. The painter Redon and the poet Mallarme' developed an idiom in which to express themselves that Gauguin used as the basis for what was to be his Tahitian art. He was going to a strange land to find a completely different decor to set his imagination free. He was therefore determined to associate in every possible way with the natives. He left Paris on the evening of April 4, 1891.

His grandmother, Flora Tristan, was a revolutionary socialist and an early French feminist who sometimes claimed to be descended from "a Bourbon of Aragon" whose family also produced the Borgia popes and Lucrezia Borgia. Tristan married a French engraver who became so violent that he was eventually locked up for twenty years. Their daughter, Aline Chazel, was Gauguin's mother. His father, Clovis Gauguin, was a journalist who died when his son was an infant. Paul had no formal education of any kind beyond high school. He ran away to sea at the age of fourteen, acquiring a taste for travel at that time. He left the French Navy at the close of the Franco-Prussian War. He settled in Paris, painting in his spare time while working in a banking house. He not only distinguished himself in his brokerage firm, but managed to make considerable profits from independent speculation, earning as much as the approximate equivalent of $40,000 in one year. Van Gogh, in despair at Gauguin's decision to leave, had severed his left ear with a razor, and handed it as a gift to a prostitute who had befriended him. Saddened by the disastrous culmination of his visit to Van Gogh and depressed by public laughter and neglect of his painting, Gauguin nevertheless painted several still lifes that belied his state of mind and manifested his belief that, "The Japanese are masters of us all." The influence of woodcuts became evident in the flat background and decorative patterning. The hot pinks and yellows anticipated the riotous colors that would dominate his Tahitian paintings. The painter Redon and the poet Mallarme' developed an idiom in which to express themselves that Gauguin used as the basis for what was to be his Tahitian art. He was going to a strange land to find a completely different decor to set his imagination free. He was therefore determined to associate in every possible way with the natives. He left Paris on the evening of April 4, 1891.
